    I have had a black rucksack stolen (I think) from the bar in Symphony Hall this evening. If anyone at the Open has picked up a black rucksack by mistake from the area of the bar nearest to the entrance please contact me on 07738114968.

    Many thanks,

    Good Luck in your search. I, like most people would like to think its a mistake. Perhaps I'm being naive, but I'd hate to think we had thieves in our movement. Please help our friend here out if you have any info. Well done also on a commendable result.

    The reality is we do I'm afraid. We had a Euph stolen from a contest which despite being traced, was never returned because the thief removed the serial no. He was a well known local player and probably still has the Euph today.

    Thanks for the messages - happy to say that my bag was actually taken from the bar by mistake yesterday evening! Many thanks to Alan Hodgkinson (a gent and a scholar) for finding it - much appreciated mate. However, I do know of several thefts and attempted thefts that have happened at the Open over the years, and was rather astounded to find out yesterday that the bar/catering areas do not have any kind of CCTV coverage - surely a bit silly for such a crowded and often used area of the hall??

    Donna - I forgot to change by details on the profile thingy - was just up for a listen (and possibly a few drinks as well :D), haven't been at Grimey since I moved to London! Hope you're well.

    Rob, you are lucky ... the bag might have been classified as a terrorist threat! :eek:

    I knew that! I was just laughing at Jason for not knowing his beans or his players!

    God, you must be bored! I was merely sympathising with the guy. Thats what nice and decent people do. I don't have to know the guy for that! The people I do know, I know for the right reasons, not because I constantly feel the need to mix it up on here. There! It took a while but you got your much needed reaction. Last Word. Anyway, must go, I've got a jelly setting in the fridge!

    Glad you got sorted Rob.
